Read City of Saviors (Detective Elouise Norton, #4) Online Free - Los Angeles Homicide Detective Elouise Norton encounters her toughest case yet in City of Saviors, the fourth installment in the critically acclaimed mystery series from author Rachel Howzell Hall.
After a long Labor Day weekend, seventy-three-year-old Eugene Washington is found dead in his Leimert Park home. At first blush, his death seems unremarkable―heatwave combined with food poisoning from a holiday barbecue. But something in the way Washington died doesn’t make sense. LAPD Homicide Detective Elouise "Lou" Norton is called to investigate the death and learns that the only family Washington had was the 6,000-member congregation of Blessed Mission Ministries, led by Bishop Solomon Tate.
But something wicked is lurking among the congregants of this church.
Lou’s partner, Detective Colin Taggert, thinks her focus on the congregation comes from her distrust of organized religion. But Lou is convinced that the murderer is sitting in one of those red velvet pews―and that Bishop Tate may be protecting the wolf in the flock. Lou must force the truth into the light and confront her own demons in order to save another soul before it’s too late.

Rachel Hall has to be my favorite AA female author of mystery right now. And she did not disappoint in the 4th installment of the Elouise Norton novels. The only complaint I have is that there are not enough titles by her (Rachel) yet. I'm a fan of all of her works , even the first book I read ye...

Listen, I really love this series. It's interesting, gritty, and I can relate to Lou on a personal level. I love that when I'm reading this, I don't think of her as a character.
This book is my favorite of the series so far and I hope it's continued. After the events of the last...

City of Saviours is the fourth book in the series to feature Lou Norton but the first that I have read. Obviously, there is a lot of back story but it didn’t stop me enjoying the book and it was easy to read as a standalone. If anything, the back story has made me intrigued about what I have miss...

I enjoyed City of Saviours.
I thought Lou was a great character; broken but not ready to give up, tough, resilient and passionate about her job. I found her relatable and sympathetic.
The investigation into Eugene’s death becomes quite strange...

I am definitely a fan of Rachel Howzell Hall and her Detective Elouise Norton series. The first three books in the series are stellar, and the fourth, City of Strangers, may just outrank them.
In City of Saviors, Lou has just returned to work full time after an accident and the killing of a heinou...

I'm only sorry it's over. Detective Norton's prospective on life is 'can and will do'. She muscles through fear and adversity to champion the weak, vulnerable and murdered. As usual her descriptive language puts you right in the scene without revealing the criminal. Meanwhile her friends and othe...

Rachel, You did it again!
I loved it, but then I have loved every book written by this author. Yes. I have read every single book that she has written and she just gets better and better.
This time, Detective Lou solves quite a few murders with more twists and turns than I can count. The storyline...
